Story by Jack Foley
SACHA Baron Cohen is reuniting with Paramount following the success of The Dictator to make a new comedy called The Lesbian.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is based on the story of the Hong Kong billionaire who offered $65 million to any man who could marry his homosexual daughter.
Cohen’s The Dictator grossed $175 million world-wide.
It is not yet known whether Cohen will turn the project into another star vehicle for himself but he will serve as producer with his Four By Two Films development company.
